Final Four NCAA Basketball prediction using quilt block names

Right now you are probably at work trying to fill out your NCAA brackets.  You need that edge, that new way of looking at these brackets cause any fool can go by the seed or the experts' predictions.  You are NOT that fool, no sir, you are going to use Quilt block names to predict the winners.  If you want to do the research yourself, here's the site.  Or just let me do the work for you.

Oklahoma boomerIn the Midwest,  there are Missouri, St. Louis and Oklahoma blocks but Oklahoma wins with two, so natch Oklahoma State will make the final four.   Do youroad_to_oklahoma_quilt_block_pattern think they will be the Oklahoma Boomers or  be back on the Road to Oklahoma?   See, isn't this fun and easy?

Onto the West where there are Irish blocks but the two Kansas blocks have to be split between Wichita State and Kansas.  Tough break for Dorothy's state and this results in Ohio State taking the coveted Final Four Spot with Ohio Beauty/Buckeye Beauty and Ohio Star.  Both are optimistic names! Two spots are still up for grabs in our quilter takes all tourney.buckeye_beautyohio_star_quilt_block_pattern


In the South Georgetown has a quilt block, nice job when it is not even a state name!  There is a Carolinas block but since there are two Kansas blocks, it is easy to say who grabs that all important spot at the quilting bee of the basketball world.   But will the winner be a Kansas Star or have Kansas Troubles?kansas_troubleskansas_star_quilt_block66


Which brings us to the East, tough bracket.  There is a Chicago block but as much as I would like it to, I don't think it will suffice for the Illini.  There are probably five California indiana puzzleblocks but more teams from there than that.  I think the myriad varieties of Indiana puzzle block gives it the slight edge for the last spot but will too many substitutions also prove to be their undoing?

For those of you who didn't follow this quilt logic that puts Oklahoma State, Ohio State, Kansas and Indiana in the final four.  Hey, don't blame me, the blocks have spoken.  For the final winner, well you are on your own for that one.  Or maybe the Quilts will make yet another prediction further down the road.

If these blocks don't convince you then perhaps our final block will be your choice.  I believe it should be the official  NCAA tournament watchers' quilt block, drunkards pathnone other than Drunkards path.

May the best block win!

Sew happy!
